From Chef Hiroyuki “Zama” Tanaka, the highly lauded talent behind Rittenhouse Row’s Zama, CoZara brings small-plate Japanese cuisine to University City. Alongside yakitori, spring rolls, tempura and noodles, the menu includes sushi specialties like the UPenn Roll and the Drexel Dragon Roll, which pay homage to the neighborhood’s nearby institutions. Happy hour is particularly lively here thanks to deep discounts on food and drinks, including a “big ol’ bowl” of chicken wings and a pitcher of Yuengling for just $15.
